  -> Each bank has several cashiers with desks.

disagree  AllegroTrans: I have never seen the cashier's desk number on a bank statement - they are issued centrally nowadays, sometimes from the other end of the country, and certainly not by a specific cashier//so by adding yr ref @ 16 hrs you say this is the only option?

Introduction. Ce module permet de suivre un compte bancaire ou compte de caisse.
"Les comptes de virements internes sont des comptes de passage utilisés pour la comptabilisation pratique d'opérations au terme desquelles ils doivent se trouver soldés. Ces comptes sont notamment destinés à permettre la centralisation sans risque de double emploi :

• des virements de fonds d'un compte de trésorerie (banque ou caisse) à un autre compte de trésorerie (caisse ou banque)"
